9:03 am
election day. democrats said the law was a ploy to beat president obama for making it harder for minorities to vote. the judge ruled there wasn't enough time to enact the law to make sure some voters weren't disenfranchised. the pilot of air force 2 had to delay landing two times yesterday because of bad weather. the white house says the pilot missed approach during thunderstorms at charlotte international airport. later fog caused the plane to land at dulles instead of andrews air force base. maryland residents could be asked to pay more for electricity each month. >> but the extra money would go towards preventing major power outages. fox5's melanie alnwick joins us with details. >> reporter: good morning. i just got off the phone with a spokesman for maryland's public

service commission and she says the commission doesn't have the report. they understand it will be released today. the recommendations from the governor's task force, and they look forward to considering the recommendations. this came about after the june storm. it knocked out power to millions. some people offline more than a week. after that the governor put together a task force, because he wants them to look at ways to improve reliability among the utility companies. given the outrage we've seen over and over again when pepco has asked for rate hikes, it's a good bet the governor's proposal to add another fee onto consumers won't be that popular with the public. governor o'malley said in his executive order that upgrades to the power grids are necessary and urgent.
9:05 am
he said these prolonged outages cause economic and health damage throughout the state. he outlined the recommendations of his task force in a meeting with the "washington post" editors and reporters. in his words, he said the surcharge would amount to a dollar or two per month. the details will be outlined in the report the task force will publish today. again, the public service commission would have final approval on this. governor o'malley did tell the post that it's not just an additional fee, that there would be a carrot and stick approach, that in addition for the surcharges, also would change the way utilities are monitored and increase the standards that they have to go by in terms of how their reliability is judged. that's a big thing here in the state. a lot of people upset. it's been going on for a long time here. several consumer advocacy groups said they are not happy with the proposal to put yet another charge on consumers.

american airlines. another inflight maintenance scare that startled passengers. this as they deal with performance problems and delays. wisdom martin is back to talk about all of this. >> the bad news just keeps coming for this company. today the latest issue came yesterday, rather. the pilot of a flight from dallas to st. louis reported a problem with the landing gear. he turned the plane around and brought it in for an emergency landing about 10 minutes after takeoff. people on the flight were told to brace for a crash landing. it did land safely and no one was hurt. meantime, american airlines says it now knows what caused a series of midair seat malfunctions. the airline says improperly installed clamps caused the seats to come loose on three flights, two of which had to make an emergency landing. they'll inspect 47 jets for similar issues. they have not said where the seats were installed or who might be to blame.
9:10 am
good news for american, the airline is making progress in a standoff with its pilots. the pilots union says it will resume negotiation talks and delay releasing the results of a strike authorization vote scheduled to end today. hopefully, if you have tickets or a frequent flyer with this company, you hope all this gets resolved before you get on the flight. there's a lot going on. >> you don't want those kinds of problems. >> not at all. >> thank you. appreciate it. the clock is ticking. we are now hours away from the first presidential debate. over the past few days we've heard the candidates talking about the extensive time they've spent preparing. so are they ready? for a preview we head out live to denver. good morning, good to see you. good to talk to you. i guess ready or not, here the debate comes. they need to be ready. a lot on the line. >> reporter: there is a lot on
9:11 am
the line. a lot of people would argue, and they debate about the debate. i think they can confirm the trend or now and then punctuate it. in 1980 with ronald reagan was the case. john kennedy against nixon was the case. you can argue in 2000 with bush and gore. some of these debates turn more on style than substance. the economy is front and center tonight. that is an area mitt romney feels he's got the ammunition. he's got the data. the concern among some of the romney supporters is he doesn't walk out on the data. he's got it down cold. the criticism is he hasn't brought passion to the argument and he's the guy to lead the change. expect him to throttle on the weakness of this recovery. expect the president to come back and show with the latest
9:12 am
jobs figures and others that has been moving in the right direction, that the trend is his friend. they're each going to look at the same thing, selling it differently. >> are there some concerns in the president's camp, similar concerns to those in the romney camp? because the president, though he brings passion, he can be wonky and goes on with the answers. >> reporter: who am i to judge people on being dull? there is a concern that boeing of these guys -- the president is a gifted, eloquent speaker. the wrap on romney is he's not, but smart. but the point is here, sometimes you have to get to the point and keep it very simple. there was talk in 1980 about
9:13 am
ronald reagan was personally insulted by the mischaracterrations that he felt jimmy carter has hoisted on the public in one ad after another. he left it at only there you go again, famously dismissing the entire democratic argument against the challenger. i don't know if mitt romney has that moment in him, or what barack obama has in his arsenal. it could be interesting. >> we don't know what questions yet will be asked. i wouldn't be shocked if the issue of what are now these dueling tapes come up. we have this new tape of then candidate barack obama talking to back clergy -- black clergy. do you think those are come up and do you think the tapes negate each other? >> reporter: i don't know. i tend to think this stuff tends to be noised.
9:14 am
whether it's information from months ago or years ago, or tapes that are unearthed suddenly out of the blue. i kind of think it rides on the basic stuff going in, in this case, on the economy. though it's not a subject of this particular debate, what's going on in the middle east. those arguments prevail. now, obviously, if an opponent can work a tape or embarrassment in the news to his advantage in framing a question or an answer, i could be alone on this, i just don't think it will matter. the economy will matter. people watching at home will try to size these guys up as to who has the best prescription. whether we want government to keep doing what it's doing or scale back what it's doing. whether the debt comes up, whether it's too much too fast. i think it comes back to a subject dear to me, the meat
9:15 am
and potatoes, and that's it. >> that's what they'll be talking about tonight, the economy. thank you and we look forward to hearing more from you in the days ahead. thank you. you can watch the first presidential debate here on fox 5 starts at 9:00 tonight, live from denver. a heartwarming moment as the marlins make a one-day hire. >> we'll tell you about adam greenburg's return to the major league. >> nats have one game left in the regular season. redskins return home, but will they have the services of these two,, involved in a bizarre pregame accident. we'll update their health when we return. oh, nogotg . , can you ma that to go? these days, nobody has time to get sick.

adam greenburg got a rousing ovation as a pinch hitter for the marlins last night. he struck out on three pitches. he got hit in the head on the first pitch he saw at his first major league at bat more than seven years ago. he never made it back to the majors until last night. he still suffers from positional vertigo as a result of that ball hitting him in the head. >> how dangerous sports can be, right? >> quirky in the major leagues. if you get walked or hit by a pitch, it doesn't count as an official at bat. technically, yesterday was his first at bat. it's like if you ever saw field of dreams moon light graham, that was the thing, he had given up his dream to play baseball. walked and it didn't count. i watch too many movies. >> good ones. >> yes, i do. >> dave ross is here. >> let's talk about the nats. we're down to game number 162

9:21 am
and there it goes. sixth straight game he hit a homerun, tying an orioles franchise record. that's a bomb. >> will set a new record today? >> if he does it, number seven. they win 1-0, one game behind the yankees. if the yankees lose and orioles win, they would play a one-game playoff tomorrow. >> all right. there you go. >> would be cool. >> quickly, redskins back home on sunday. taking on the falcons, they're 4-0. probably won't have either of these guys. meriweather on the left, holding his knee. and robinson got knocked out on this bizarre pregame warmup. robinson has his head down, probably listening to his music, getting loose. meriweather going full speed, testing that knee and they collide. meriweather will have to have more tests on the knee.

definitely out for this week. and they need meriweather and they need robinson. two guys you're counting on and we don't know when, if they'll be back. >> look at the other starters out with injuries. >> it's so funny, because every year you say, every team has injuries. the redskins seem to get more than the next team. it's not an excuse. but seems like they have bad injuries like that. fluke stuff. >> thanks, dave. >> what's that word? >> fluke. flukish. find out why the international space station is on the move. let's check in with holly. >> reporter: see these wonderful artificial flowers? they could be the inspiration for your halloween costume. he has done costumes for madonna, lady gaga, heidi klum. coming up live later, he
